Special situations call for special products. You will find service sinks from Villeroy & Boch in the Special bathroom fittings category. Washbasins developed for domestic bathrooms can’t or aren’t allowed to be used everywhere. Special sinks are required in garden sheds, hospitals, laboratories, garages and many other places where you do more than just wash your hands. And Villeroy & Boch can help you in these situations, too. There’s nothing to stop you from also installing one of our special sinks in your own feel-good oasis to accentuate your individual style.
You normally use washbasins to wash your hands, brush your teeth and maybe even to do some hand washing. Standard ceramic sanitary ware is more than sufficient for all this. But sometimes washbasins need to be more robust. In laboratories and workshops, a range of chemicals or aggressive liquids find their way into the outlets. Or places where a lot of dirty water is poured out into the sink, such as in your garden or utility room. These situations call for a special service sink, which is primarily functional.
Can you remember your school days? Many classrooms, especially the art rooms and workshops, had one or more washbasins, often with a higher back panel, which was attached to the wall. This back panel, made seamlessly with the sink, prevents dirty splashes of water from landing on the wall. This is especially important when there is no backsplash. You will find these kinds of service sinks in the O.novo range from Villeroy & Boch. Optional back panels are also available from the same range, which you can attach behind every O.novo service sink without an integrated back panel.
Double sinks are perfect when several colleagues need to use the water at the same time. It ensures that no one gets in anybody’s way. It makes sense to have double sinks or even rows of washbasins in hospitals, schools, nurseries as well as washhouses e.g. on camping sites or in sports clubs. Thanks to the rectangular construction, these special service sinks take up little space when installed in wet rooms.
An O.novo model with a folding grid from Villeroy & Boch is perfect for your garden plot or garage. You can get rid of dirty water and easily fill your watering can without have to hold it until it is full. You may have come across laundry sinks in art class. These special sinks are slightly deeper and look a little like a trough. But ceramic laundry sinks are also popular in utility rooms as their deep basins make it easier to pre-treat, wash or soak the washing.
Villeroy & Boch has service sinks in different sizes for any room size and usage, proving that space does not determine quality. The largest of our single service sinks, model number 632700, is 695 mm wide and 500 mm deep. In contrast, the smallest model is only 495 mm wide and 400 mm deep. The double sinks are available with a width of 795 and 895 mm. If you need a row of washbasins, then plan for at least 1000 mm, i.e. 1 metre, for the width. The sink depth of the O.novo laundry sinks and the service sink incl. a folding grid, stated as the height, is significantly deeper than that of a standard sink. This makes it much easier for you to pre-treat a mountain of dirty washing or pour out a bucket full of cleaning water.
The O.novo special sinks are available in two or three colours, depending on the ceramic and coating used. Choose between White Alpin, White Alpin with the CeramicPlus material or White Alpin with the AntiBac coating. This special coating was produced in Villeroy & Boch’s innovation lab. It ensures that bacteria and germs cannot spread on the surface and provides long-lasting protection from them. This glaze containing antibacterial silver ions inhibits bacterial growth by more than 99.9%. And that is exactly what you want for ceramic sanitary ware and fittings. The long-lasting protection was confirmed by the independent BOKEN Quality Evaluation Institute.
Just like standard washbasins, these special sinks can also be mounted on the wall or on brackets. They can be installed in your own bathroom as well. Double washbasins and rows of washbasins in particular accentuate a specific interior style. The sleek rectangular shape is timeless and always modern. The O.novo range features an easy-to-clean, dirt-resistant surface – thanks to the use of CeramicPlus as a material. The sinks can be mounted either with commercially available special iron or they are placed on brackets that are able to bear the load.
Special bathroom fittings ensure that you have everything you need for any situation that involves dirty water. All of our special bathroom fittings were put through their paces and have naturally passed all of the extensive quality tests. The tests focused on the cleanability, resilience, impermeability and service life of the individual O.novo models in accordance with the EN 14296:2015 standard. You can therefore be sure that the specifications are correct and deliver on their promise – for all Villeroy & Boch branded products.
